I think the gods are messing with me because I literally got myself psyched up to blog a winter place and I found the gorgeous autumnal tones of a place called Longing Melody calling me from the destination guide.

Normally I would have had far too much eye of the tiger going to stop and would have circled back around to the fall scenery when I'm sick of winter next week, but I actually once blogged a place called Missing Melody and it was so great I was hoping this was by the same person, so I went.

Well then I'm hovering above the build as I do, and there's only one other person there at the time and I just love the scenery. The trees are gorgeous, the little scenes with the animals are so well done they could be a kids book, I just love all of it. And thank goodness, that one other person there is the owner and designer, Bambi, and she confirmed this is an extension of Missing Melody and I confirmed it is every bit as gorgeous. 

I spent the better part of a morning there trying to find THE pic because there are so many great scenes and shots and objects to focus on it seems far too easy to get a great shot, so I really scoured the place it is astounding the level of detail she's created. Many of the shops and rooms that normally sit empty or partially decorated in picture sims are lavishly and thoughtfully developed into amazing vignettes that quite literally kept me quiet and happy for quite some time this morning.

And if you know me, that's saying something!





So Bambi also has a store called Oh Deer! and readers will be wondering why I'm mentioning this because I rarely mention stores unless actually blogging one or something but this one is especially awesome- 

I blogged Flower of Scotland a couple of weeks ago, I thought it was gorgeous and will do more pics from there soon, and I spent a lot of time there so when I heard that Oh Deer! is located at that beautiful build I just could not believe it. 

Yep. Even the store is gorgeous, you would not know this is someone's shop and not just part of Flower of Scotland unless you were looking for it. Can confirm that too, because I was actually looking for it and it took a while!

The store:



So please do yourself a favor and block off some time to go walk around at Longing Melody. It's gorgeous and will make you smile (especially if you like the Beatles).

When in doubt, Frogmore

I have been struggling with another story, hahaha SLuggling I guess, and have tried to write it several times only to realize I don't know what I want to say and so this poor space goes unused and my Flickr sits idle while smoke pours out my ears. 

Or actually I shop

But nonetheless I needed to get my groove back and none of the places I found were getting me excited about SL photography and I didn't have a story to write or a picture to take and I thought, why don't I go to Frogmore.

It's actually a joke with a friend of mine since everyone already knows how gorgeous it is that when I get stuck she says "Blog Frogmore" and we laugh and look for another place because, everyone knows Frogmore and it is visually delicious.

But then, I needed a beauty break and realized maybe new readers haven't found it yet and here we are now. 

Ta-da!


I popped by there twice tonight, and I have to send a thank you out to whatever muse made Frogmore come to mind because this place is exactly what I needed. 

ALL the sightlines are amazing, it's just lovely from all angles. Shoutout to Terry Fotherington and Tolla Crisp for bringing us this gorgeousness. If you need a break from the fast lane and want to spend some time soaking up beauty, go here. SLURL and Flickr group.

 Not gonna lie I had a killer outfit and went looking for a place to fill in the background with and found this place, it's amazing and I might need a better outfit.

Paradiso is super cool because it has several different and very well articulated areas- cyber-tech, fantasy, landscapes, café life, and so on. Each area is plenty spacious enough for some great pics and even if you're not a photographer the place has a wonderful vibe to hang out in.

SLURL and their Flickr Groop in case you are reading this at work and can't get in-world yet!

Best part, I ran into two of my fave flickr artists here so you might run into some as well!

 Beaute de Bordeaux is gorgeous and what a wonderful gift to the Second Life Community! Lots of great spots for roleplay, hanging out, pics and general deep soaking in beauty.

There are a million great spots here for pics, literally, it's a very clever layout mixing city and country and beautiful sky and mountains all around, not unlike Bordeaux and the French countryside it draws from. 

I wandered the grounds and took a zillion pictures and I know I will struggle to pick just one for Flickr. You should too, it's a great build by TONAL and I hope she gets a Flickr Groop soon to show off in!!

Here's the SLURL, two regions of gorgeous await you!
